Aquamax G390SS Hot Water Repair

Aquamax G390SS Hot Water Repair

Jim’s Plumbing attended a callout for a family whose Aquamax G390SS gas hot water system, because it has stopped producing hot water. Given that the unit was only manufactured in 2015, the customer was surprised that they were already having issues and was hoping that it only required minor repairs and not replacing.

The pilot light on the hot water service was out, which was caused by a faulty thermocouple. This is an essential safety device within gas hot water systems because it regulates the release of gas from the gas valve. It prevents the release of uncombusted gas should the pilot light on your unit to go out.  Fortunately, this could be fixed by the plumber without the need to replace the whole unit.

Our plumber arrived onsite with a fully stocked van, which is something we pride ourselves on. He had a replacement thermocouple on board, so he could replace the faulty part immediately. Much to the customer’s amazement, the hot water system was fixed in a few short minutes and was producing hot water again that evening.
